Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, they found three praying rugs near the border. Two of those praying rugs are facing opposite directions. The prayer rugs are meant to face Mecca and clearly the one in the middle is facing the opposite direction to the one on the right. Praying rugs usually have patterns on them, some would be random patterns like the left one. But most of them would have a building theme patterns, like the ones in the middle and the right. It could be houses, mosques, pillars, or gates. These ones would be easy to determine their orientation. Muslims steps on one end of the praying rugs and put their face on the other end, so in using their praying rugs, they keep one specific orientation.

In the movie, the middle one is pointing toward the bottom of the screen while the right one was pointing up. See more »

The first 21 reviews: 10/10. You know something is fup.
18 July 2018 | by rene-806-6219See all my reviews

My first review: Loved the first Sicario. Raw and different. This time I almost walked out of the cinema. Really bad. Could not believe its the same screenwriter. The story is really thin (and short). The overacting by Isabela Moner was too much on many moments. May not be her fault, but the director. Benico and Josh did an excellent job, but the movie is just bad. Most annoying is the rating her. The first 21 (!!) gave it a 10/10. The Godfather Part II came to seven (7). So something is really wrong. Really annoying because I really trust IMDB.
